Through Your Eyes
(Previously known as: The Life of the Bullied)
~How can you say you love someone, when you can't even love yourself?~
"I love you, Sarah Emilia Hall."
"I-I think you should leave." I could literally see the life drain out of his eyes when I said that, his arms falling limply to his sides as he backed up, stepping down a couple steps from me. I don't know what possessed me to say that when he was so vulnerable and obviously telling the truth, but I couldn't tune out the voice inside my head screaming he couldn't love a fat cow like me. He couldn't love someone so useless, someone so ugly.
"I-yeah. I think you might be right. I-I'll talk to you later." James practically ran down the stairs, not turning around once as he left the house, the only sound left of him was the slamming of the front door.
Sarah Hall is the fat girl. Having people, let alone her ex-friends tease, ridicule, and insult her every day she's bound to have trust issues. Although she tries to blend into the crowd, pretend she's as invisible as she seems, her life is quickly interrupted when James Black waltzes in like he wasn't there every day when she was bullied. And it doesn't help that she has sporadic bursts of the confident girl she once was coming in every now and then.
James Black is a popular boy. Tattoos, star soccer player, the center of the popular crowd. He doesn't care what anyone has to say or think about him, but when his attention is captured by one particular beauty he's bound to have some selective words for those who bully her. Yeah, he has a thing for the fat girl, the only thing is now getting her to have one for him.
Find out what happens when they meet, and what exactly happens when the fat girl and the popular boy get together.
